My favorite quotes about the privilege of motherhood:

“Making the decision to have a child – its momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” Elizabeth Stone

“There’s no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one.” Jill Churchill

To mothers everywhere: enjoy your special day on Sunday. And keep up the good work. It’s a hard battle to bring up children; maybe it always has been. But worth it. Oh, so worth it.

I’m an empty-nester now. In addition to living with me, my heart lives in Arizona, and in Tennessee. If you are a mother, where does your heart live?

  2. beautiful post Sheila! I completely relate to the “heart living outside your body” quote …. thankfully our oldest lives only 20 miles away and the youngest .. still in high school. I never understood, until I was a mother, all that my mother did for me.

    Enjoy your day tomorrow!! Cheers, MJ
